One day you see that something is wrong with your child. You go to doctor after doctor looking for answers but no one has answers for you.
Finally you come to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital then you find out that your child has been diagnosed cancer. You say, “Cancer? Why my child?”
That's what most parents say, think, and feel when their child has been diagnosed with cancer.
Parents go through heartbreaking choices that can determine where their child’s future is heading.
St. Jude Children's Hospital is here to help you fight the most life threatening diseases.
They have treatment programs and resources for diseases that could have ended your child's life.
Parents say that the staff at St. Jude's were amazingly generous and that their children develop great friendships with all the nurses and doctors that treat them.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital wants to be successful in curing cancer because they know that every parent that has a child with cancer wants their child to have as normal a life as possible, like what any other child would be doing, and get out of the hospital soon.
When you donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 83 cents of every dollar supports the research and treatment at St. Jude.
Imagine you were a parent with a child that has cancer. You would want every person to donate so your child would be safe.
So donate because you want the kids at St. Jude to be as safe as your child. That no kid would be left out just because of cancer.
They are just as special and unique as you.
